Panthers come up short in overtime at Westfield 67-63

bullet

For most of the game it looked like the Panthers had this spoilers role down pat, poised to knock the Mustangs out of the playoffs. They led my 12 in the 2nd quarter and took a nice nine point lead at the half.

bullet

But it didn't last long. Credit the Mustangs who responded to the challenge with some spectacular shooting in the 2nd half. The Panthers helped them some with too many turnovers, but it was mostly the Mustangs who just grabbed this game.

bullet

We never like to emphasize one player because basketball is the ultimate team game, but your webmaster has to recognize the performance of Cameron Rogers. 22 points - not one of them the result of selfishness, just stellar play (9 for 14 from the field and 2 for 2 from the line) - and some really great assists (5). Nice work young man! If this is a sign of what to expect next year, November can't come too soon.

bullet

Thanks to all our Panthers for your diligence and hard work over this season. The Panther Basketball program is in good hands and next year is going to be very exciting at the Oak!

Panthers can't overcome Collins - 39-56

bullet

It was another one of those games that saw the Panthers compete valiantly against one of the state's top teams. And another game that slipped out of reach due to missed free throws and layups.

bullet

Congratulations to the Freshmen Black team for a convincing win over Collins, avenging one that got away in the first round!

bullet

Pictures are coming, but they aren't there yet.

Panthers fall to Spring 59-43

bullet

It was tied at the half 24-24, but the 3rd quarter was a disaster for the Panthers as the Lions tossed in 22 while the Panthers struggled to score.

bullet

Congratulations to the Sophomore team for a hard-fought victory on the road!

Eagles deflect Panthers' best shot

bullet

For three quarters the Panthers gave one of the best teams around all they could handle. But the Golden Eagles showed why they are so highly ranked in the 4th quarter, burying the Panthers beneath an avalanche of threes. Nevertheless, Panther fans have to be extremely proud of our guys for this outstanding effort.

bullet

Congratulations to Coach Cary Black (K.O. class of '87) and the Golden Eagles. Good luck in the playoffs!

Panthers fall to Klein 37-35

bullet This just shouldn't have happened, but it's clear why it did.
bullet The Panthers, who led 27-21 and 33-29, made just two field goals and were 3 for 7 from the free throw line in the 4th quarter. Way too many missed layups.
bullet The effort, though, was excellent on both sides. Congratulations to the Bearkats for a hard-fought victory.
bullet The (extremely) bright spot for Panther Basketball tonight was another stellar performance by the Junior Varsity. Nice work, gentlemen!
bullet Some of the pictures are uploaded, but more are coming from Greg Francis!

Panthers come up just short in great Tomball game

bullet Just three weeks ago the Panthers found themselves down 35-15 at the half against the Cougars. Tonight they took a 20-16 lead into halftime. Although they couldn't pull it off, falling 52-46 in the end, the improvement is amazing, as was the effort.
bullet We're really proud of you, Panthers. You are warriors.
bullet And how about those JV Panthers! They pulled off an impressive win tonight after dropping the first game 76-45! Way to go, Panthers!
bullet Both freshmen teams also won tonight, with the Gold team avenging a 1st round loss at Tomball. And the sophomores came ever so close to avenging an earlier loss in another tremendous effort.
bullet Overall it was a night that made manifest the tremendous improvement in our program that our players and coaches have worked so hard to achieve. Keep up the good work, gentlemen!

Panthers drop overtime heartbreaker to Westfield

bullet Were it not for the Panthers spotting the Mustangs a 14-0 lead to start the game, it would have been different. As it was they spent the rest of the game playing catch up.
bullet But with the Panthers trailing by three and the clock running down, Cameron Rogers found Zach Price. Zach carefully toed behind the line and calmly deposited the ball in the bottom of the net to give the Panthers new life. Despite a lead in the overtime period, however, they couldn't quite pull of the upset, falling 67-62.
bullet It was a great game, and a testament to the heart and potential of this young Panther team. We're proud of you, Panthers!

Panthers fall to Collins

bullet Despite a tremendous effort by our Panthers - We're proud of you, guys! - our Panthers fell to Collins 73-40.
bullet The sub-varsity teams fared the same in the final score. Once again we are proud of the efforts of all these young men. Hang in there, Panthers!
bullet All district photos are now uploaded to the District Gallery (link at left).

bullet I'll be thinking of you, Panthers! Let's get some more wins!

Features Coach Martin and the Panther Program!

It's a nice article and we thank the Chronicle.

The Panthers, though, have designs on being competitive on a slightly more accelerated time schedule.

[And nobody should blame Coach Host for a less than stellar record last year as the Panthers returned to 5A with an inexperienced team.]
